Larry Harris Tournament Rules (LHTR)Edit

On July 26, 2007 the Larry Harris Tournament Rules version 2.0 were released. LHTR 2.0 are a set off rules for Axis & Allies Revised that are commonly used in tournaments and other game play. The rules were created by Larry Harris, the creator of Axis & Allies and has additionally been worked on by several players and tournament game masters. The objective of the LHTR rules are to clarify existing rules and re-work other rules to help game balance while still maintaining the spirit of the game.

Industrial Technology House RulesEdit

In the original game, this technology made all units cost 1 less to purchase. The revised rules from Wizards of the Coast got rid of this technology because it was considered unbalanced, and replaced it with Combined Bombardment, which allows your destroyers to bombard at an attack of 3. However, there are house rules that keep Industrial Technology and adjust the prices to keep ground units from being too cheap. That makes a total of 7 technologies available for development, but the new technology development system is flexible enough to allow for more than 6.
